Rebecca wells - her bio, such an interesting story (taken word by word from her site):Rebecca’s love for art began early in life and has continued to grow and develop throughout the years. She has owned several floral shops and won awards nationally for her floral artistry. In 1998 when her business burned down, Rebecca decided to pursue other venues and returned to school to pursue her Master’s degree in Behavioral Science. She teaches full time as an adjunct professor of Psychology and Sociology at Alvin Community College. After finishing school, Rebecca discovered that her creative juices were begging for an outlet. Thus, she began claying. Rebecca has worked in both earthen clay and polymer clay, but her passion is polymer. Her influence comes heavily from her love of nature and floral design. In addition, her love of color and all things organic is reflected in a large portion of her work.
